This wide ranging talk asks where and how we should focus on the needs of postoperative care patients. “Brain care has an impact way beyond the acute surgical episode”; how do we minimise the risks of a poor outcome when it comes to postoperative care?

“Advanced recovery from anaesthesia and surgery” is a talk originally given at the 8th Australian and New Zealand Symposium of Perioperative Medicine Special Interest Group: “Updates in Perioperative Medicine 360” which took place between November 7th-9th 2019.

Presented by Professor Jacqueline Close, Principal Research Fellow, NeuRA Conjoint Professor, UNSW Consultant Geriatrician, Prince of Wales Hospital.
